Tibet is situated at an average altitude of over 5,000m. The very name “Tibet” evokes feelings of awe and mystery, and is synonymous with mystery and breathtaking scenery. A land of ancient Buddhist Culture, awesome landscapes, artistic monasteries, exotic cities, hidden valleys and centuries-old caravan trails, Tibet offers a totally different experience, known as the roof of the world, it is the destination for the ultimate thrill-seeker.
Kathmandu, situated at the hub of the ancient trans-Himalayan trade route, is the perfect launching point for trips to this amazing land. Lhasa, 650km from Kathmandu, can be reached either by road or air.
The drive across the Tibetan plateau to Lhasa, which retraces the old caravan trail, is a changing panorama of farmhouses, lumbering yaks, vast plains, monasteries clinging to stark hillsides and valleys hemmed in by mountains of rock.
